Cookies and Not-So-Ugly Sweaters
One of our scholar-favorites, the WES Cookie Exchange took place Dec. 13, 2018, during the busy third week of Block 4. Board members each provided three dozen cookies, and they delivered (while wearing festive attire)!
This was a great community-building event, and we got to hear a lot of updates from our scholars, who are poised to do many exciting things next semester, following their fun and relaxing Winter Break.
